3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,5 l bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in clear golden with nice and stable head. Nose is a bit of citrus. Aroma also. Citrus mixed with hops. Taste is nearly pilsner like and compare to the other big German brands this one has a good taste where don’t recognize from the first sip on that alcohol is missing.

So sehr ich vom echten Becks begeistert bin, so schwer tu ich mich mit dem Bleifreiem aus dem Bremer Hause. Es riecht nicht wirklich nach Bier und es trinkt sich auch eher wie eine Hühnerbrühe denn nach veritablen Pils...sorry, but sail away and dream of real Becks Pilsener!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a clear and pale yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, straw, hay and sweetness. The flavor follows the nose with additional acidity. The palate is sweetness with notes of acidity. Overall a boring beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Same as the alcoholic counterpart. Golden colour, white head, noses hoppy and then though some bitterness too. This goes on when drinking the beer. The nosed bitterness punshes somewhat through the sweetness and it gives the impression this beer is missing something.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Asda. Looks like a standard pale lager - which isn’t a compliment. Smells of potato crisps. Taste actually isn’t too bad - bitter rice that lingers but, unsurprisingly, lacks depth of flavour. Lacks any nasty artificial sweet aftertaste that plagues many ’normal’ pale lagers. Ok. Beats a soft drink. Just.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 50 cl. Clear pale golden with a frothy, very white head and a rather skunky, lightly toasted cereal aroma. Flavor is grainy, skunky, thin and watery, but not as bad as I would have guessed from the other ratings. Actually, it is quite drinkable - for what it is. A lightweight skunky washed out rather bitter North German pilsner look-a-like.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I never intended to sample this, and I guess it’ll bring down my Germany average a bit. Oh well. Dreadful nasty skunk. The bottle may have been tainted as it was at a hick rural Manitoba golf course. Taste was not as bad as the aroma. Overall, nasty stuff.

I bought this by mistake. Horrible. Probably bad storage, because it had a prominent skunky flavour. Poisin like finish.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Typisch bitterer und cornflakesartiger Beginn. Dies verstärkt sich noch, dabei sind die Noten aber noch auszuhalten. Ansonsten ist das Bier getreidig. 8/5/8/5/7/5

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
No laughter. I was the designated driver and I thought the taste of lager (aka beer) would be better than the taste of Adam’s ale. And you know, it wasn’t bad. Looked like a lager, aroma was pleasant toasted cereal, taste clean and crisp nutty grain, with a clean finish. Impressed. Should I admit to that?
